I'm very naive to the ways of Ubuntu. My problem is that no matter which release i use, my wifi connection is very slow (can't stream anything, pages load slowly, etc.). However, when plugged into the router the speed is very fast/as it should be.

Use Windows drivers yo solve your problem:

Install ndiswrapper

sudo install ndiswrapper-common ndiswrapper-modules-1.9 ndiswrapper-utils-1.9

Install the WiFi driver (from Windows):

sudo ndiswrapper -i yourdriver.inf

Check the driver is working:

sudo ndiswrapper -l

Load the module:

sudo depmod -a

sudo modprobe ndiswrapper

Configure modprobe so that it loads ndiswrapper:

Edit the modules to add ndiswrapper at the end:

sudo gedit /etc/modules

Remember to add ndiswrapper at the end.

Hope you now have your WiFi back to max speed!
